    I'm not sure if this topic is beaten to death or not, but I was taking survey from Nokia today, and they had this posted on the page about 7.8 Update:

    Perhaps someone will find it useful.

    Below you can see the key features that both Microsoft and Nokia bring to the Windows 7.8 update
    From Microsoft

    - New homescreen experience with more room for your Live Tiles. Now resizable.
    - Set the Bing image of the day as the Lock Screen wallpaper
    - Pocket and child proof Lock Screen security
    - 20 new accent theme colors

    From Nokia

    - Bluetooth Share (for DRM free media files)
    - Cinemagraph add-on to create a blend of photo and movie-like animation, creating photos that are alive
    - New camera lenses to remove moving, un-wanted objects in your photos such as passers-by or people on the edge of the shot that spoil the photo
    - Updated Contacts Transfer application
    - Updated Contact Share application
    - Ringtone Maker application

    Also they included an sample image of the Cinemagraph addon:

    and the removing content:

    Not really, the thing is Nokia have been leaking out alot of info but HTC have been quiet all the way through. The 7.8 update is a Microsoft update, as was 7.5. Just like all 7.5 have the same features 7.8 will too, it just depends on manufacturer apps like Nokia or HTC apps.

    No bluetooth file sharing and cinegraph as for today. Still I like very much new tiles and colors - WP 7.8 has all of them. I updated with a ROM that Nokia released on NCS

    Can anyone with the latest 7.8 build check whether there is a setting for text resizing like on WP8 (under accessibility settings I think)? The parents are struggling with the small text size and I'm on the verge of getting them WP8s if they won't be getting this feature soon.

    @Lumis90:

    Thanks in advance!

    Does 7.8 have the screen capture option? I'm assuming not since you went the dev route? lol.

    Sorry for bumping this thread, I wasn't sure if it was worth making a new one just for this quick question. Nokia tweeted out the picture below a couple of days ago with regards to the 7.8 update. Question is, does anyone know what the accent colour on the blue-ish phone is?



    Thanks
